Four Lookers in Move-in Condition to See This Weekend, Starting at $1.85 Million


    We’ve got a bunch of lookers for you on the open house front this weekend. No eyesores, no bring-your-architect specials, no sagging investment properties. Three have been completely renovated in recent years, and pair modern updates with period details; the fourth needs a bit of work, but is in good shape, with some interesting features. They’re found in Park Slope, Clinton Hill, Williamsburg and Bed Stuy.

    First up, a showpiece of a brownstone on a park block in the Park Slope Historic District, on 6th Street. This one, a circa 1895 Romanesque Revival, got a deluxe renovation in 2010, and it combines restored original details with high-end updates. In the detail division there’s stained glass, lovely original woodwork, six fireplaces (one working), and the original wainscoted staircase; in the update division there’s a tricked-out kitchen, a huge skylight, new baths, four-zone a/c, recessed lighting, a new rear deck, and new plumbing and electrical. It’s got a five bedroom owner’s triplex with a one-bedroom rental on the garden level.

    Next up is another house that’s gotten an overhaul and combines original details with modern updates, on Berry Street in Williamsburg. It’s got fewer details and a more modern feel, with a lot of exposed and painted brick and some colorful, playful elements; note in particular the Scandinavian-influenced, minimalist kitchen, with its yellow sink, orange faucet and backsplash of oversized purple tiles. A one-family with three bedrooms, it’s got two open plan floors — the parlor floor and the top-floor, intended to serve as master bedroom. Above that is a sweet sunroom and roof deck. There’s central air and “top condition mechanicals, electrical and plumbing.”

    On Greene Avenue in the Clinton Hill Historic District is a corner brownstone with a number of points of distinction. It’s got two addresses, for starters, with a separate entrance on Vanderbilt Avenue, leading to the lower duplex via the brick-walled back yard. Then there’s that awesome iron archway in the front,with lettering we can’t quite make out from the pictures. There’s the pedigree — it was built circa 1878 and was the home of Brooklyn’s first Roman Catholic bishop, Bishop Louglin. It’s got three exposures, with a side window bay on the parlor floor, double-height ceilings on the second floor, two terraces, and details including tin ceilings, a pier mirror, at least one mantel, moldings and some wide-plank floors. There’s a lower, two-bedroom duplex and upper, three-bedroom triplex. Condition looks good but it could use some sprucing and updating.

    Last stop is Bed Stuy, where we find a three-story Queen Anne/Romanesque Revival house on Chauncey Street in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District. Chic and minimalist, it’s another one with original details and modern upgrades; the former include four slate mantels (one fireplace works), pocket doors and crown moldings. It’s got a two-bedroom rental on the garden level; above is an owner’s duplex with five bedrooms, one of which is atypically located in the front of the parlor floor, with the living room in back, adjoined to a stylish kitchen with marble counters and backsplash. The bathrooms have all been renovated and the mechanicals and electrical are recently upgraded.
